Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll: Best TV Show Marathon

Recently I watched all of Top of the Lake (from 1-3 a.m., slept, went to work, came home and finished the last five episodes before bed), which Selena reviewed a few months ago. I have also finished the entirety of Peep Show, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Black Books and Luther, all in a matter of days. This doesn’t count my weeks with Twin Peaks, or Veronica Mars, or even my year of Buffy and Angel, or my frequent rewatches of Archer.

Clearly, I have made excellent use of my Netflix account in past years.

What about you? Has your Hulu Plus/Amazon Prime/Netflix/DVR helped you through a surprisingly great marathon? Did you ever get so far through a TV series, you didn’t even realize it was happening? Is the Netflix autoplay a curse and a blessing? Discuss.

I do not have this thing called the Netflix. But I have been known to marathon GoT, The West Wing, Big Love and Modern Family more than is perhaps healthy.

I also marathoned Once Upon A Time but I spent the whole time hating it as well, so that one’s a mystery.

I also watched Supernatural within a 3-4 week span but I illegally downloaded while living overseas.

I was in the middle of Luther season 1 on Netflix, but my computer hard drive crashed and I introduced my mother to Netflix so she’s marathoning West Wing on the iPad so that’s on hold atm

The first season of The Walking Dead. In, like, two days. At the conclusion of which I called my husband and told him not to come home without large pieces of plywood. To which he responded, “I take the bus.”

On a side note, how does one do italics?
